I'm located down in the Valley, near the US/Mexico border. 4 hours from San Antonio and 5 hours from Austin. Are there any meet-ups down where I'm at? I lived in Austin for 10 years and attended all the Cars and Coffee events but not sure there is anything like that down here?

I'm from Brownsville and there wasn't much activity when I lived there many years ago. How's the scene down there?

Couple after C&C pictures from Sunday. Don't personally see a ton of 135's in north Austin, but there's another white one with a black spoiler and black badges that I always see on Courtyard drive off 360. Seems to be the go-to theme for white 1er's. I'm guilty as well...

The Longhorn Racing Academy is good people. Too bad I missed C&C last weekend.

new to bmw!

Just picked up a 135is convertible last week. I've been perusing this forum to learn more about light/easy mods and maintenance. But, honestly there are so many acronyms that I'm unfamiliar with, that it's been pretty difficult. I'm in the north side of Fort Worth. Anyone feel like meeting up for coffee and teaching me about this cool little car?

Hey guys, does anyone know of a good mechanic or shop that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to do a downpipe swap on a n55? I live in Austin and everywhere i call to get a quote it's over $500. Which seems ridiculous for something I could probably do myself with a lift. Any recommendations will help, thanks.

Have you checked with Josh at Lindsey Bimmer Service in Cedar Park? Not sure about pricing, but he's a trustworthy indy.

Pass Inspection. Austin Texas.

Does anyone know of a shop in Austin Texas that will pass emissions test for an inspection? I have a catless downpipe and needs someone to pass me. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

If you want to save and do it yourself how about Austin DIY Shop. A guy I worked with used to do his own brakes there on his Mercedes and liked it. If you need help they have mechanics.

Anyone going to Austin cars and coffee 10-8. My wife wants to go show her new Mini S she's been tricking out. She's got the Austin mini club meeting up at target on RR 2222 and driving in together. I could bring my rough new to me 128 if anyone else wants to drive in and have a 1er show of force.

So I'll leave the BMW at home and ride with my wife in the mini/BMW. If you want to say hi we'll be in a smal group and I'm with the electric blue and blackout trim.

Did you sell the intercooler? Also what size tires are those in your pics above? The terrible runflats that came with the car are finally about done so time to upgrade.
